Ready-steady-cook 2013

campcookOn Sunday 19th January 3 Scouts from the 172 took park in the Derby South District heat of the Derbyshire "ready-steady-cook" competition.  This is the first time the Scouts have entered such a competation but I am sire it will not be the last. 
The Scouts had to cook a three course meal for two for under £10.  They were allowed to bridge a cake or pastry already cooked but every thing else had to be done in the time and on a two ring stove.  The 172 menu started with a Prawn Cocktail went on to hand-made Meet Balls with pasta in a tomato sauce and ended with marble cake in chocolate custard.


The team did extremely well and came joint second out of the 6 teams present.  This was a big achievement for our team as they were by far the youngest team present.  Well done to Matthew, Abbie and Lauren.
